'll continue to monitor developments in ukraine. >>> for the record, we invited secretary of state kerry to join us today. but although the white house put him out on all the other broadcast sunday shows, they declined to make him available to us or you. >>> up next, former irs official lois lerner refused to testify about the targeting of conservative groups. now darrell issa wants to question her again based on new okay, listen up! i'm re-workin' the menu. mayo? corn dogs? you are so outta here! aah!

john kerry was in kiev arriving with $1 billion loan package for the country's faltering economy the secretary issued a forceful rebuttal to russia and offered the kremlin a diplomatic off-ramp to the 21st century. >> we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression in its diplomacy and respect for sovereignty not unilateral force that can best solve disputes like this in 291st century. this is the 21st century, and we should not see nations step backwards to behave in 19th or 20th century fashion. there are ways to resolve these differences, great nations choose to do that appropriately. >> but given president putin's statements on ukraine thus far, it's clear that that off-ramp will remain unused for the moment. putin made fairly ludicrous statements. he said the soldiers in the ukraine, those 6,000 men patrolling cry meia, those were not russian forces at all. he insisted they were, quote, local defense forces and call the people's uprising against ukrainian president viktor yanukovych an unconstitutional coup and said they were sitting in a laboratory and running experim
regions. we know which view of history putin has. he does not have the view obviously that secretary kerry would like him to have, so-called modern view where the balance of power was a thing of the past that we only saw in the 19th century. that is not how they view the world and leads me to believe that this is something we should be recognizing as well. i leave you with this. the real question is, we will be going through very specific measures about things that should be done here and we were discussing that and in response to the questions, i will leave some details for that. but i leave you with two thoughts. the short run to me is not as important as the long run. the long run i think we need to restart rebidding our strategic position to signal that american retrenchment is over and this will go a long way to signaling to russia and china and to other country that is this long drift in american power is going to be reversed. and the second thing we have to start thinking differently about, we need to stop thinking of military power as a metaphor for military intervention. we used t
. >> kerry kennedy's legal team showed up in court acting like the charge against her is no big deal. the case is simple against the 54-year-old niece of president kennedy and daughter of the late senator robert kennedy. prosecutors say she was driving drugged in 2012 when her lexus sideswiped a truck, kept going and was found by the side of the road with kennedy incoherent behind the wheel. on the stand, however, she said what she's claimed all along, that she accidentally mixed up prescription medications. >> i told the officer that it was theoretically possible that i had mistakenly taken an ambien rather than a thyroid pill earlier that morning. >> reporter: kennedy's connections have drawn tremendous attention to the case. in the audience, her friend diane neal, an actress who used to be on "law & order." and ethel kennedy. the lawyer is famous for his famous clients including michael milk milken. she's also the wife of andrew cuomo. still on the stand prosecutors pounded her asking how she could not realize she took the wrong pill? how could she claim she remembers nothing from
states stand on this situation? secretary of state john kerry saying that this is not about the united states versus russia. watch. >> we're hoping that russia will not see this as sort of a continuation of the cold war. we don't see it that way. we do not believe this should be an east/west, russia/united states. this is not "rocky iv." march good of to have you here -- martha: good to have you here, bret baier. they may not want vladimir putin to perceive as a cold war chess game, but perhaps he does. >> yeah. it was interesting to hear the secretary of state it's not rocky iv, you know, 1985, rocky balboa against ivan drago -- martha: very food trivia. >> and and rocky wins in the end. critics are saying vladimir putin may be looking at reruns and wants drago to win this time, and they want the u.s. maybe to have a little bit more stallone. it's clear that putin is making moves here with his military and all the thing that amy kellogg just talked about. this is happening realtime, hour by hour, and the create mania region -- crimea region is vulnerable. there's stuff happening. the
